What is a dental weekend / emergency service?

Accidents unfortunately happen and sometimes they occur at extremely unfavorable points in time such as in the middle of the night or during weekends. Fortunately, patients do still have solid options to get appropriate dental care even in the most desperate times. 

Dental emergency service is performed outside of normal business hours and is intended specifically for the treatment of urgent medical emergencies in and around the oral cavity. The goal of this emergency treatment is to avoid any worsening or potential complications of the condition and, if necessary, to create a solid basis for a follow-on treatment during the next week day. The scope of dental emergency service is, as the name implies, limited only to absolutely necessary dental procedures to treat acute dental conditions. Dental weekend services include a broader range of dental illnesses and conditions that may not be as acute or urgent.

When do I need dental weekend / emergency service?

Dental emergency service is intended for patients who suffer from the following health conditions:

* Oral and dental injuries caused by accidents (e.g., jaw fractures, broken teeth, injured lips, tongue, or gums)

* Secondary bleeding after dental surgery (e.g., after a wisdom tooth extraction or a root canal procedure)

* Infections inside the oral cavity (e.g., a dental abscess or gingivitis)

On the contrary, the scope of dental weekend service includes dental illnesses and conditions that are not as acute such as, for example, a broken dental prosthesis or a cracked tooth filling.

How much does a dental weekend / emergency service cost?

Dental insurance offered by the state usually covers dental emergency services. If patients happen to need special care and/or higher-value treatments that are only partially or non-covered by their insurance policies, they will have to pay for the cost difference out of their own pockets. For patients with private insurance, any out-of-pocket payment obligations depend entirely on their individual insurance contracts.
